From the rear side cover: The Flugabwehrkanonenpanzer 1 Gepard self-propelled anti aircraft gun is an autonomous, highly mobile, all-weather air defence weapon system. Fitted with two 35mm automatic cannons, a search radar and a tracking radar, the vehicle can engage fixed-wing and rotary-winged aircraft at short and very short ranges, including suddenly appearing targets. In service from 1976 to 2010, the vehicle was fielded by the German Army Air Defence Force in the following variants: Flugabwehrkanonenpanzer 1 Gepard (B2), Flugabwehrkanonenpanzer 1 A1 Gepard (B2L) and Flugabwehrkanonenpanzer 1 A2 Gepard. This publication describes the Gepards development history, technology and extensively shows the vehicle in action.
Illustrated throughout with lots of black and white photographs.
